Your post and Mr. Abrahams reply have really surprised me. Not only I
have been recently said that there are no actual criteria to decide a
release, but I've always thought that the purpose of boost was to
estabilish 'existing practice'. Now I hear that someone is in a hurry
to get something released so that it can be seen at one of the
committee meetings which contradicts both the 'no criteria' and the
'existing practice' idea. How can something that nobody has used yet
be existing practice?
